After staring at hand-stitched Pikachu (which is really a bleak moment in one's wasted life), I decided it wouldn't look right without the stripes. Which are actually brown, but I thought that a limited palette would be more aesthetically pleasing. Because true artists take those things into consideration when stitching Pikachu.
